General grants are for supporting communities experiencing inequity, exclusion, and disadvantage in the Wellington region to thrive. Our focus with general granting is on the benefits to communities (the outcome), not on the particular type of initiative or project.
Applications should meet at least one of these criteria:
Up to $10,000 for a quicker decision (expect a decision within several weeks)
Up to $50,000* for more strategic grants (expect a decision within several months). *We will accept applications for more than $50,000 if an initiative strongly aligns with the criteria and our vision. Please speak to us first.
WCF does not fund:
(In some circumstances exclusions may differ for specific funds or initiatives)
